Pelosi suggests potential plot to remove Trump from office
before election: ’…talking about the 25th Amendment’ 1

During a recent weekly press briefing, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) hinted at a discussion that would be taking place about the 25th Amendment.

As she fielded questions about negotiations on coronavirus relief funds, Pelosi said to reporters:

“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.”

Allegedly, Democrats and the few never-Trump supporters have been talking about using the 25th amendment to remove President Trump from power since the first day he took office back in 2017. The 25th Amendment reads:

Section 1- In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President;

Section 2- Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress;

Section 3- Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged. by the Vice President as Acting President and;

Section 4- Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

When Trump announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19, social media accounts were abuzz with the suggestion of using the 25th Amendment to remove him from officeUSA TODAY justice and legal affairs reporter Kristine Phillips said:

“It’s too soon to talk about the president’s demise, but it’s not too soon to talk about the 25th Amendment. Trump’s symptoms could get worse and could affect his thinking.”

CBS-affiliated WUSA9 tweeted:

“The 25th Amendment helps accommodate for situations when a president gets too sick.”

Author Paul Brandus noted:

“The amendment was last invoked in 2007 when then-President George W. Bush briefly transferred his authority to Vice President Dick Cheney, while Bush underwent on colonoscopy.”

NPR Politics tweeted:

“What happens if the president is incapacitated? The 25th Amendment charts a course.”

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera stated:

“25th Amendment possible. @VP has to be ready to be “acting president” under Sec 3 of the 25th Amendment. The rest of us have to stay calm & carry on.”

Others pointed out that jumping to discussions involving invoking the 25 Amendment under the current circumstances is completely absurd. Political operative Ford O’Connell tweeted:

“The level of nonsense flying around in the media is beyond outrageous. People are talking about the 25th Amendment, the nuclear arsenal and the line of succession and it is not even 3:00 PM ET. Get a grip folks, it’s too much, especially for a Friday.”

In the most extreme scenario being promoted, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is depicted as possibly taking over as president. Though the president has been discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and appears to be recovering rapidly, Pelosi has taken it upon herself to elevate social media chatter to a plan of action. 

This is just one of many times Pelosi has tried to either impeach President Trump or take him out office.

WASHINGTON D.C. – Since the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been making sly but threatening comments about what would happen if President Trump nominates someone to the Supreme Court to fill the current open seat. One of the main things she has been tossing around, is impeachment. 

On Monday, September 21st, President Donald Trump spoke about Pelosi’s refusal to rule out impeachment, in order to stop him from nominating a replacement to the Supreme Court.

During his rally in Ohio, when speaking about this, President Trump said:

“Go ahead. I want them to do that … I’m the only guy in the world that could get impeached for trying to fill a seat on the Supreme Court.” 

According to Breitbart, in an interview with New York Times journalist Kara Swisher released on Monday, Pelosi said she had the power to impeach Trump again.

Pelosi said:

“Well, we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does.”

On Sunday Pelosi was also interviewed by ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, where she was asked if she would rule out impeachment after she said that everything was on the table to stop Trump’s Supreme Court choice from being confirmed.

Pelosi replied

“We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country.”

The ever outspoken Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) also chimed in with her two cents and made similar comments in a press conference on Sunday, September 20th, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

She said:

“I believe that also we must consider, again all of the tools available in our disposal and that all of these options should be entertained and on the table.” 

During his rally, President Trump boasted about the fact that he will be able to nominate yet another person to the Supreme Court. 

Trump said: 

“Think of that. Three. … A lot of presidents get none. We’ve had three.” 

He continued:

“It’s blowing their minds.”

Trump told his supporters what he thought would happen if Biden wins the upcoming election.

Trump said:

“If Joe Biden and the Democrats take power, they will pack the Supreme Court with far-left radicals who will unilaterally transform American society far beyond recognition.” 

He continued:

“They will mutilate the law, disfigure the constitution, and impose a socialist vision from the bench that could never pass at the ballot box.”

Here is more on Pelosi’s interview with George Stephanopoulos.

In a recent appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi paid tribute to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg while refusing to take another impeachment inquiry off the table in order to block President Donald Trump’s upcoming nominee to the Supreme Court.

When ABC News Chief Anchor George Steohanopoulos raised the possibility of the Democratic-controlled House moving to impeach Trump or Attorney General William Barr to stop the Senate from voting during a “lame-duck” session, Pelos said:

“We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country.

Members of Congress take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people.”

She added:

“So, right now, our mail goal and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be, would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the American people from the coronavirus. So, again, when people say, ‘What can I do?’ You can vote. You can get out and vote and you can do so as soon as possible.”

At a campaign rally in North Carolina, Trump pledged to nominate a woman, saying that he plans to nominate Ginsburg’s replacement within the next week.

During her appearance, Pelosi said that Democrats would not use a continuing resolution to keep the government open before a potential shutdown on October 1st as leverage to try and slow down the impending nomination. She said to Stephanopoulos:

“None of us has any interest in shutting down government. That has such a harmful and painful impact on so many people in our country. So, I would hope that we can just proceed with that.”

She added:

“We’re not going to be shutting down government. I do hope, though, that the focus on health care and what it means in terms of the courts will have public opinion be of such magnitude that the Republicans will finally, finally address the coronavirus crisis.”

Stephanopoulos questioned Pelosi about Democrats calling to expand the number of seats on the court if the Senate confirms Trump’s nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden is ultimately elected. She responded by saying:

“Let’s just win the election.”

Just hours after Ginsburg’s passing was announced, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed that a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court to fill her vacancy will “received a vote” on the “floor of the U.S. Senate.”

Pelosi was pressed again by Stephanopoulos on whether she would employ impeachment tactics, to which she said:

“The Constitution requires that Congress use every arrow in our quiver.”

The White House slammed Pelosi’s suggestion as a “bizarre and dangerous” power grab. White House Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern told Fox News:

“The Speaker threatened to impeach the President, again for simply fulfilling his constitutional obligation.”

He added:

“Numerous Democrats are threatening to pack the court and say things like, ‘nothing is off the table.’ These are bizarre and dangerous power grabs by Democrats who will stop at nothing to erode the Constitution and enact their radical agenda.”

Morgenstern said:

“President Trump will fulfill his constitutional duty to protect our God given rights and do his part to fill the seat.”

Pelosi said to Stephanopoulos:

“This is about the people. It’s about their health, their economic well being, the health of our democracy. We have a great deal at stake here.”
